...remembering him taking out 3 guys as a FB on an Anthony Thomas TD run against Wiscy.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||He's been on a couple of tv shows in the past.||
The great Brisco County Jr., and the awful Saved By The Bell: The College Years.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Bingo.||
It's much more likely that Hardaway gets an oReb on a Burke miss than the other way around. That's going to skew the numbers a bit.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Hmm.||
Not sure Ted Kennedy would have agreed.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Well played.||
Very well played.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||The David Terrell...||
...B.A.D.-Ass Co-ed Activities Liaison.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||One argument I'm not sure of...||
... is the notion that revenue sharing make the NFL a "socialist" enterprise. Well, no more than owning shares in a corporation is socialist. I've always thought of the NFL as one giant corporation, with each team representing a share. I.e., if I buy the Lions, I'm not really purchasing the Lions franchise as must as I'm purchasing a piece of the NFL, which is a giant money-making operation. Maybe I'm wrong, though.
The other points are fair, though I'm glad the MLB hasn't implemented relegation -- given the late 90s, the Tigers would have been in the Dominican Summer League.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Time for my annual repost...||
...of this great article that shows what a tool Lemming is.
Of surprise to no one, Bo loathed the man.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Watching MR for the '86 version of The Game w/o audio...||
...but was that a failed 2-point conversion attempt? When the extra point would have put us up 3? I know I'm not supposed to critique Bo, but that seems ... questionable.

Blaha: Rick Mahorn, who does radio, was in the center of press row and went up to make sure that the gals, one of our official scorekeepers, wasn't injured — and that one of our longtime statisticians, who is physically impaired a little bit, didn't get hurt. I saw Ricky taking care of business.
Mahorn: You do what you gotta do sometimes in life.

Maybe Dantonio was cheesed that he was sharing the stage with a lowly assistant coach instead of Hoke?
I imagine someone who's -really- paranoid could have seen this as "MSU head coach is only worth as much as a Michigan assistant."
|2 years 31 weeks ago||It'd be nice to get further confirmation.||
But it's clear from the MHSFCA site that the two (Dantonio, Hecklinski) were on the same panel this morning:
Maybe some enterprising soul can reach out to a camp participant? I'd imagine it was a pretty popular and well-attended session for HS coaches.
Regardless of whether this particularly incident is true or not, it's become pretty clear from all other actions to date (feuding with Hart, swipes at Michigan during unrelated press conferences, the incident in the Bacon book) Dantonio is one disturbed cat.
p.s. Good to see that they started out the morning with an "everyone attends" session on concussions.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I think it was in the last 5-6 years...||
...that Austin Panter kid that everyone wanted desperately to work out at linebacker. For some reason he never cracked the rotatation.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||This phrase made my ears prick up:||
"[T]here does appear to be sufficient information to raise significant concerns as to whether a concentration of power in a single individual or program may have threatened or eroded institutional control of intercollegiate athletics at Penn State."
That's not an accidental choice of words. This is a necessary finding for a NCAA "death penalty."
Am I crazy for thinking that the B10 wants the Penn State football program to die for a few years? Do they have that power? And if not, what if the Big 10 (as opposed to the NCAA) finds that these concerns -- i.e., a lack of institutional control -- existed? Can the NCAA bootstrap onto the finding? Should I stop asking questions?
|2 years 39 weeks ago||THIS.||
"[W]e’re going to take some -- I don’t know if you call them ‘chances,’ I call them ‘opportunities’ when they come. "
Oh, what a wonderful thing to read these words.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Sorry, this popped up and I just had to post:||
On Friday afternoon, according to two team sources, new receivers coach Kermit Buggs gathered his players in a room at the PSU football complex and allowed them to talk with McQueary on a speaker phone.
During a brief and emotional conversation, McQueary told them, “I wanted to let you guys know I'm not your coach anymore. I'm done.”
When players asked, "Coach, where are you? Can we see you?" McQueary responded, “No, I'm actually in protective custody. I'm not in State College.”
McQueary added that he was, "Double-fisting it," meaning he was having two drinks at once.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Bieleman talking about playing between the whistles?||
Wasn't he Wiscy's coach when one of his special teams guys tried to twist Stevie Breaston's leg off after the play was dead? I don't recall any suspension / discipline meted out in that instance.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||This...||
...is the essential point. This guy was never coming to UofM. He wants to put out stuff that makes UofM look like it doesn't / didn't know what it is / was doing, that's all. All this noise about "neck-and-neck with State" is just that: noise.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Re: Lewan||
I was sitting behind the Michigan bench, about 15 rows back, and appeared that he was not well. It wasn't that he was favoring / protecting a limb, it just seemed like he was seriously gassed. I wouldn't be surprised if he had the flu or something.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||"No Spartan can be that stupid or ignorant."||
My dear brother-fan, as someone who grew up just outside of East Lansing before attending UofM (x2), I must tell you: you're dead wrong.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Also check out some of SN's||
Also check out some of SN's comments below, which seem to have disappeared from the board but not from the Internet:
I'll give you this, HailToTheVictor...
...you've got balls. Big, fat, juicy ones. Dantonio-esque, even. Only you (and fifteen or so others on this thread) have the nuttage to take me on. All the other losers on this website are laughing, thinking I'm some sort of joke.
(Which I'm not! I'm as serious as George Perles at the Old Country Buffett on Grand River Avenue. As serious as Coach Dantonio's engorged man-meat pointing at the heavens towards his celestial birthplace. As serious as Cedric Everson walking through that door with one thing on his mind. But I digress.)
But you know better. You understand how important these internet posts are. How necessary it is to get the final word in over a fan of the opposition. That you can't let some Spartan waltz onto a Wolverine website and say things like "Caulcrick is pretty good" or "Hart should shut up" or "maize looks suspiciously like yellow." That a war of words over the internerd matters. Alone (with fifteen or so others) amongst these cowards, you grab a hold of your cojones and say: this will not stand. And I applaud you for it, br...
Whoa, that was close. True: in another life, we might have been brahs. If I close my eyes I can see it -- it's brah-tastic. But as brah-some as it might have been, we're doomed to be enemies forever. Like Cena and Batista, man. Cena and Batista...why can't they see they're on the same side? [Sob.]
Anyways, I'm out. Stay strong, HTTV. Stay strong.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||It's in regard to that 1989 agent case in Chicago.||
A writeup is here.
So, the question then was "why didn't Dan Webb cross-examine Bo?" I remember reading / hearing that in the pre-trial deposition Webb & Co. wanted to paint Bo as a wealthy guy making money off the backs of the poor players. But when they asked about his salary, they discovered it was -way- less than other top tier coaches. When they followed up with questions about the Nike / merchandising money, Bo explained that it was pooled and divided up among all the assistant coaches. And Bo's pure anger / righteousness just played too well to the jury.
I seem to recall that one of the AUSAs wrote up a recounting of the whole thing somewhere, but I can't find it. Points to anyone that can.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||He had one of the best blocking plays I've ever seen.||
On an A-Train sweep Shea pulled ahead, crushed Wiscy defender #1, then charged further downfield and wiped out Wiscy defenders ##2-3. And the camera and announcers were only paying attention to A-Train trotting into the endzone. If that is MANBALL, I'm all for it.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||The only evidence in that article...||
...is that Narduzzi is a horse's ass. I just love the pass-agg in his comment:
"Whether they're stealing our signals, I don't know. But we've got something (changed this year) on the signals too. You never know. Guys are thieves, you know."
If you don't have evidence, don't shoot off your mouth. But that's par for the course with that meathead. As I recall, he was the one who cursed out the MMB (trombone section) after our last win against them. Pure class, him.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||This marks a turning point in Michigan bball recruiting...||
... if we're activitely hoping that an AAU coach can out-influence a kid's parents.
[NOTE: I realize that this coach isn't one of the shady ones. Still.]
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Not entirely fair.||
As I recall, he was pretty good at having a hot wife.
|3 years 1 day ago||In a nod to your handle, how about:||
The Apostate Berates, Three Days Late.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||C'mon, man...||
...don't allow yourself to be reasonable. Get swept up in ANGAR.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Apparently Comley chose to go down swinging.||
Michigan State hockey head coach Rick Comley reportedly was involved in a physical confrontation Friday night in the Carlson Center with Alaska Nanooks fans Robert Downes, a Fairbanks Superior Court judge, and his daughter, attorney Amy Tallerico.
So, to recap the MSU fan's fevered mindset: beating on judges and smacking around chicks is fine if you're a true Spartan warrior. Darius Morris trash-talking back at one of the biggest sh!t-talkers in the B10 -- that's just not classy.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Dear Coach Rodriguez, Thank||
Dear Coach Rodriguez,
Thank you for your kind offer of auto-asphyxiation (non-erotic) after this most recent loss to our friends in the North. It should be noted, however, that Michigan-style atonement requires a full display of traditional seppuku or hara-kiri. Dressed in ceremonial all-white funeral robes you will kneel atop a snow-white tatami mat, itself covered with crushed red velvet. After you profess your shame – which will haunt your descendants unto eternity – David Brandon will offer you a nod, which you should take as a “go-ahead” signal. Kindly unsheathe your short sword and plunge it into your lower abdomen. Please cut across and then upwards before major shock sets in. Once you have completed this exercise, the officially-appointed kaishaku (most likely Lloyd Carr, though we’ve been hearing good things about Gary Moeller) will provide you with the supreme honor of decapitation.
In the alternative, please start winning some of these games.
Very truly yours, etc.
